Emotionally Intelligent Parenting: Learn how to better understand and interact with your child.

The Kew Centre of Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) is pleased to provide a new parenting program, Tuning in to Kids for Couples.

Backed by evidence-based research, this program focuses on supporting parents to develop key skills to recognise and respond to their child’s emotions, conflict management, and helping their child develop emotional intelligence.

RAV is providing this free, seven-week program as a part of a research study conducted by the University of South Australia, to explore whether the program is helpful for parents and caregivers and their children, and the program’s effect on the relationship between them.

The program is for all types of couples, including couples who are married, de-facto, separated, step-, or biological/non-biological, same-sex, and non-custodial parents. It also includes couples or two people caregiving for children in foster or kinship care.

Tuning in to Kids for Couples teaches parents/caregivers to:

  • understand children’s brain development and emotions
  • help their children manage difficult feelings such as fear, sadness, frustration, and anger
  • build parent-parent and parent-child emotional connections
  • stay calm when dealing with their children’s challenging behaviours
  • assist their children to prevent/reduce challenging behaviour
  • enjoy time with their children and other parent/caregiver
  • work together when responding to their children’s emotions

Where: 46 Princess Street, Kew Victoria 3101

When: 6:30 – 8:30pm for seven sessions on May 15, 22, 29; June 5, 12, 19, 26 in 2018.

Pricing: Free of charge

Babies and children cannot be accommodated in groups.
